Leon Schwartz, Associate at GTC Law Group, and Marty Mellican, Associate General Counsel at Flexera, look back at 2019 in this webinar and show us how open source trends are shaping open source legal responsibilities and approaches.

From a legal standpoint, open source software (OSS) use forces lawyers and general counsel to step up their game and provide open source management leadership for the companies they represent. Take note, however, that the landscape is always changing.

In a Red Hat survey, 69% of IT leaders said that enterprise OSS was either “very important” or “extremely important” to their organization’s enterprise software strategy. Open source affords all kinds of positive benefits and 2019 showed us that it’s creating positive disruption in the world of digital transformation. Net, open source use will only continue to skyrocket.
